Elf in Concert

Dec 19 - Dec 22
2024–25 Add-On

Buddy was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York City, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. This holiday season, rediscover this heartwarming classic as John Debney’s wonderful score is played live by the NY Phil while the film plays on the big screen.
